Gary Gunter has been hired by Suffolk, a real estate and construction enterprise that’s been lauded for its tech adoption, as vice president of preconstruction for the South Central Region, which includes Dallas-Fort Worth.
Boston-headquartered Suffolk has an office in Dallas, among other cities.
“Gary is one of the most well-respected and successful preconstruction professionals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, so we are very fortunate he has joined our expanding team,” Brad Brown, president of Suffolk’s South Central region, said in a statement. “Few construction professionals have been as intimately involved in the estimating and planning of this region’s most high-profile projects. Gary is an expert on the state of the DFW market and will be an integral aspect of Suffolk’s growth strategy.”
Suffolk said that Gunter comes aboard as the company continues to expand its presence in the region, manage more sophisticated building construction projects, and diversify its portfolio.
Suffolk said its national diversification strategy, called Vision 2025, aims to add value for clients across the entire building lifecycle by focusing on its core construction management services while expanding into vertical service lines such as technology investment, design-assist services, and real estate development funding.
It said those processes and technologies increase the safety, efficiency, and predictability of projects to change the way buildings are planned, designed, built, and managed.
Suffolk said that Gunter’s market knowledge, depth of trade partner relationships and preconstruction reputation are unsurpassed in the region.
In the past 10-plus years, Gunter successfully provided preconstruction services on more than $2 billion and 10 million square feet of construction volume, including the Toyota North American Headquarters in Plano, projects at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport Terminal B, State Farm at Cityline in Richardson, and Fanny Mae Regional Headquarters, among others.
Suffolk said that Gunter is among other recent strategic executive hires, all of which underscore the organization’s commitment to national growth and diversification, thoughtful leadership, and operational excellence.
Last year, Brown was hired as president of Texas by Suffolk to lead the region, enhance functional and operational processes, and drive future growth.
Currently, Suffolk is managing or has recently completed notable projects in the DFW market including The Galbraith, The Terminal at Katy Trail, Dallas Mesquite Government Center, the Terminal C Renovations at Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, and the planned hotel for The Tribute.
